A Stop To Red Light Cameras?

AMENDMENT in House Transportation Bill At Issue
All Springfield Reps. Supported It
Yet Reps. Dixon, Schoeller Doubt It Will Survive

Missouri lawmakers are moving towards passing a bill that could put a halt on red light cameras in Springfield.

The Missouri House has approved an amendment that would require communities with red light cameras to put the revenue from tickets back into schools. The city of Springfield said that if passes out of conference committee, it would effectively shut down the cameras here.

Watch my KY3 News @ 10 report HERE.

All of Greene County's lawmakers voted for the amendment. But now they are doubting it will survive the conference process. Watch for comments from Rep. Bob Dixon and Rep. Shane Schoeller in the piece.
